რუკების შექმნის პროექტის ერთი წელი საქართველოში

At last, we’ve finally packaged up our Georgia map data! I’m particularly excited, as this represents the culmination of over a year of work by hundreds of people, and the result is one of the best, and certainly the most up to date map that exists of Georgia. It’s truly amazing how so many people have come together to work on this project, mapping their own towns and regions with the local knowledge that no one else could possibly have.

This video shows over a year of work, as our mappers gradually expanded the map to cover an immense amount of space.

მესამე ნაწილი - მონაცემების გასაჯაროვება

This is part three of a three-part series about online maps in Georgia. In my previous installments I covered the basic of online map providers and compared the maps for Georgia. So as I’ve tried to describe, there are a number of platforms out there where we’d like to see maps of Georgia. In this final installment, I’ll try to answer some of the questions that I am most commonly asked. Here it goes!

Why are you mapping Georgia?

If you give your child 10 lari and tell her to go to the store to buy some bread, khachapuri and tomatoes, then when she returns you probably expect her to have bread, khachapuri, tomatoes and about five lari in change. If she came back with bread, tomatoes, and one lari, you'd probably expect one of two things to have happened. Either she paid too much for the food, or that she pocketed some of the money. In any case, you would not be happy with the results.

Online maps are getting more and more pervasive these days, thanks in large part to the brilliant engineers at Google and Microsoft, and no less the nascent neo-geographer movement and the overall democratization of maps. I get a lot of questions nowadays about online maps in Georgia along the lines of: Why are you mapping Georgia? Why isn’t Georgia on Google Maps? Will we have Google Street View in Georgia soon? Why doesn’t the government take care of this?
